liposuction or liposculpture?
Jan 26, 2006

I'm 51 Y.O. man who is suffering from lipodystrophy sumptoms; enlarged breaasts and belly,loss of fat in upper legs and buttocks. I have tried onon-invasive remedies with little success. Are either of these techniques viable remedies? Any suggestion on how to start a search?

Response from Dr. Henry

Has your HIV specialist looked into whether your HIV meds can be switched around to possibly help out. I have had a number of patients undergo liposuction to remove fat. I have no experience with any of my patients having added fat to legs/buttocks (that would be difficult to accomplish). KH
